On the longest day of the year, many people crave an extra treat as the sun shines all day long. Kroger is celebrating those 900 minutes of sunlight with free ice cream. Here’s how to get a pint.

Ice cream and summer go hand in hand. Many people can remember running towards the sound of the ice cream truck rolling down the street. Even if the heat caused that frozen delight to drip on your hand, there was nothing sweeter than that ice cream dessert.

When a food brand can capture that sweet nostalgic sentiment, it gets everyone excited. Kroger might not be driving to everyone’s street with a cone, but it is giving away 45,000 free ice cream pints on June 20, the first day of summer.

According to Kroger, everyone can visit to download a coupon for a free pint of Kroger Brand ice cream. The codes are available while supplies last. More information can be found on the website.

Speaking about this free ice cream promotion, Juan De Paoli, vice president of Our Brands for Kroger said, "Summer means more time with family, more time by the pool and more time indulging in our favorite treats, and nothing says a perfect summer day like sunshine and Kroger Brand ice cream. With more sunshine to enjoy a sweet treat, we are giving away ice cream for 15 hours straight; that is a whole lot of free ice cream."

Whether people choose to eat ice cream for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just any hour of the day, the reality is that Kroger has a plethora of flavors for any and every preference. From the classic vanilla to a fruity, sweet strawberry, everyone has a scoop to enjoy.

Since ice cream is meant to be fun, the Kroger Brand Deluxe Tie Dye Burst is a great option to capture that summertime vibe. From the color to the combination of vanilla, cherry, and blue moon, it blends that nostalgia with carefree moments that epitomize the season.
